Recipe tips and frequently asked questions
What sort of Oreos should I use?
Regular flavor double stuffed Oreos work best, as there is more sweet cream filling to hold the candy corn in place. I tried making these with double-stuffed Oreos but they tend to fall apart without the extra frosting to hold them together. You could also use regular Oreos but you will need to add a bit more frosting to stick them together.
What sort of chocolate chips should I use?
Light-colored, mini chocolate chips work best with the recipe. You want ones with the folded-over tip as this looks the most turkey beak-like. Light-colored chocolate chips work best. I used peanut butter chips but you could also use white chocolate chips or pumpkin spice if you can find them!
Double stuffed Oreos: regular flavor double stuffed Oreos give the best turkey look. Double stuffed also give you more frosting in the middle to push the candy corn into. You can also use regular Oreos, but you will need to add more frosting to stick them together.
Candy Corn: regular white, orange and yellow candy corn works best. This is great way to use up left over candy from Halloween!
Candy google eyes: These are a simple way to add the eyes to the turkeys.
Light-colored chocolate chips: I used peanut butter chocolate chips as they are a nice light brown color. Pumpkin chocolate chips would also work well if you can get them, or failing that white chocolate chips. They need to be small chips with a folded-over tip on the end to form the turkey's beak.
Frosting (not pictured): I used store-bought vanilla frosting to help hold the thanksgiving turkeys together and stick on the face. You could use homemade frosting instead if you prefer, or mix things up with different flavors.
How to make a turkey out of Oreo cookies
See the full recipe card at the end of the post for ingredient amounts and instructions.
Use a knife to carefully separate the Oreo cookies. Put whichever cookie has the filling stuck to it filling side up.
Press five candy corn into the filling to form a fan shape, with one in the middle at the top and two on either side.
Pipe some frosting over the candy corn and the rest of the filling in a roughly circular pattern.
Press the top Oreo back onto the cookie.
Use a small dot of frosting to stick on the googly candy eyes.
Use a small dot of frosting to stick on the chocolate chip beak and you're done! Try to put the folded-over bit of the chocolate chip facing away from the googly eyes. This makes it look the most beak-like.
How to serve
To serve these Oreo cookie turkeys pop them onto a plate and enjoy! Perfect for a Thanksgiving dessert table or snack for the kids!
How to store
These Thanksgiving Oreo turkeys can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. After that they will still be safe to eat, but the cookies may start to go a little soft over time.
